Add intensity and variety to traditional pushups by adding some movement. In this walking pushup, you walk the hands from one side to another, using a plate or other object to mark your position. This is a great way to engage the core even more and involve some of your stability muscles. You can also try this by all the way around in a circle.
- Begin in a pushup position, on the knees and toes, with a paper plate, band or other marker under the left hand.
- Perform a pushup, lowering down until the elbows are at 90-degree angles and, as you press back up, walk the left hand to the left and the right hand onto the paper plate.
- Perform another pushup, this time walking the hands to the right so that the left hand is once again on the paper plate.
- Continue pushups, alternating walking the hands to either side for a total of 10-12 reps (one rep includes walking to the right and left).
